Episode 115 - Stephanie is deeply passionate about the message of Os Guinness. In Part 2 of this interview, Os and Stephanie take things personally: how will our true knowing of God shape our calling and tranform us into the force for transformation God is calling us to be? Os takes us to the Old Testament truths of justice, community and covenant as radically important ideas that show the world the way forward for each of us personally. “There are two revolutionary faiths bidding to take the world forward,” Guinness writes. “There is no choice facing America and the West that is more urgent and consequential than the choice between Sinai and Paris. Will the coming generation return to faith in God and to humility, or continue to trust in the all sufficiency of Enlightenment reason, punditry, and technocracy? Will its politics be led by principles or by power?” While Guinness cannot predict our ultimate fate, he warns that we must recognize the crisis of our time and debate the issues openly. As individuals and as a people, we must choose between the revolutions, between faith in God and faith in Reason alone, between freedom and despotism, and between life and death.

187: Evolutionary Science versus Meditation

Growth Mindset Podcast

Why Buddhism is True written by Robert Wright 'Why Buddhism is True' looks at the science and philosophy of meditation and enlightenment. Robert Wright is a devout non-meditating anger prone evolutionary psychologist and writer. He dives headlong into the world of meditation with surprising results, and explain why it works from an evolutionary standpoint. Robert Wright famously explained in The Moral Animal how evolution shaped the human brain. The mind is designed to often delude us, he argued, about ourselves and about the world. And it is designed to make happiness hard to sustain. But if we know our minds are rigged for anxiety, depression, anger, and greed, what do we do? Wright locates the answer in Buddhism, which figured out thousands of years ago what scientists are only discovering now. Buddhism holds that human suffering is a result of not seeing the world clearly—and proposes that seeing the world more clearly, through meditation, will make us better, happier people. In Why Buddhism is True, Wright leads readers on a journey through psychology, philosophy, and a great many silent retreats to show how and why meditation can serve as the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age. At once excitingly ambitious and wittily accessible, this is the first book to combine evolutionary psychology with cutting-edge neuroscience to defend the radical claims at the heart of Buddhist philosophy. With bracing honesty and fierce wisdom, it will persuade you not just that Buddhism is true—which is to say, a way out of our delusion—but that it can ultimately save us from ourselves, as individuals and as a species.

My guest David Godman has extensively written on the life, teachings and disciples of Ramana Maharshi, an Indian sage who lived and taught for more than fifty years at Arunachala, a sacred mountain in Tamil Nadu, India. He first visited the Tiruvannamalai ashram of Ramana Maharshi in 1976. And for 8 years, between 1978 and 1985, he was the librarian of the ashram. In the last 30 years he has written or edited 16 books on topics related to Sri Ramana, his teachings and his followers. Quote: ‘The thinking mind and the I-thought are one and the same. The thinking mind is an illusion.' As the author of the book 'Be, As You Are', David is deeply familiar with the teachings of Ramana Maharshi, who is considered the most important Indian saint of the 20th century. In this conversation he answers questions such as: - Who Ramana was and why he was considered the most important Indian saint of the 20th century? - How did Ramana experience Self-realisation? - What did Ramana mean by ‘No effort is required to realize the omnipresent Self. In fact, it has always been realised. Only the illusion of the I-thought has to be overcome in order to realize this.'? - Did he recommend any practices or ‘character' qualities to realize the Self? - Could you explain Ramanas way of teaching? How did he lead his devotees to realize the Self? - Were there spontaneous Self-realisations? If so, how did they manifest or express? - How would one describe life after Self-realisation? - Does Self-realisation mean you have to meditate until you pass through different states of consciousness, such as samadhi, or did / could it occur instantaneously? - How did Ramana define the mind and what was reality to him? - Did Ramana believe everyone who wanted to could realize the Self in this lifetime? - What did Ramana mean by ‘There is neither creation nor destruction, neither destiny nor free will, neither path nor achievement. This is the final truth.'? Should we (our ego) still strive for something, e.g. Self-realisation? - How did his teaching differ / was similar to other advaita teachers, such as Papaji / Nisargadatta Maharaj? - How did your life change working and spending so much time with many great gurus? ► About David Godman: https://www.davidgodman.org/ https://www.youtube.com/c/DavidGodmanArunachala ---------------- ★★ SHARING = CARING if you enjoyed this episode, sharing with others who could benefit from this information too is truly appreciated!

Episode 114 - Stephanie is deeply passionate about the message of Os Guinness. How are we to understand the times we are living in? How are we to live as Christians and agents of both reconciliation and truth in a culture that seems to seek neither? How are we to fulfill our calling, individually and corporately? The stakes could not be higher--and the answers are found in Scripture. Join us for a fascinating conversation, a deep dive into the human heart, and an ambitious call to live for such a time as this. In these stormy times, loud voices from all fronts call for revolution and change. But what kind of revolution brings true freedom to both society and the human soul? In his latest book and on Gospel Spice today, cultural observer Os Guinness explores the nature of revolutionary faith, contrasting between secular revolutions such as the French Revolution and the faith-led revolution of ancient Israel. He argues that the story of Exodus is the highest, richest, and deepest vision for freedom in human history. It serves as the master story of human freedom and provides the greatest sustained critique of the abuse of power. His contrast between “Paris” and “Sinai” offers a framework for discerning between two kinds of revolution and their different views of human nature, equality, and liberty. Drawing on the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, Guinness develops Exodus as the Magna Carta of humanity, with a constructive vision of a morally responsible society of independent free people who are covenanted to each other and to justice, peace, stability, and the common good of the community. This is the model from the past that charts our path to the future. “There are two revolutionary faiths bidding to take the world forward,” Guinness writes. “There is no choice facing America and the West that is more urgent and consequential than the choice between Sinai and Paris. Will the coming generation return to faith in God and to humility, or continue to trust in the all sufficiency of Enlightenment reason, punditry, and technocracy? Will its politics be led by principles or by power?” While Guinness cannot predict our ultimate fate, he warns that we must recognize the crisis of our time and debate the issues openly. As individuals and as a people, we must choose between the revolutions, between faith in God and faith in Reason alone, between freedom and despotism, and between life and death. Part 2 of this conversation will release as a bonus episode later this week. Stay tuned! MEET OS GUINNESS Os Guinness is an author and social critic.

Connie's motivational quotes for today is by – Barbara Sher, “Doing is a quantum leap from imagining.”   YouTube: https://youtu.be/Ds-HQpj2gdo   Check Out These Highlights:  As I reflect and think about the topic for each show, I always want you to stop and think about how you can change something (usually small) in your life to create the life you desire or dream about.   I feel like we all work so hard and feel like surviving is enough.  But is it?  I know I feel like this sometimes too - with work, relationships, health, making money, and the list goes on.  Jennifer Hough, and I are not talking about surviving really well, which most of us think is the best we can hope for. Our conversation is about learning how to thrive, live in fulfillment, and receive the abundance of gifts that have been available and waiting for us.    About Jennifer Hough:  Jennifer was a corporate economist for a large multinational company until she got physically sick from toxic exposure, and watched her life fall into effort and struggle.   Her relentless journey to fully heal showed her that understanding the relationship of physics to life not only affected her health, but also her finances, business, energy, and communication. She became passionate about developing leading-edge systems to assist her clients to achieve quantum leap results in all areas of life.   How to Get in Touch With Website:  www.thewideawakening.com  Giveaway Link:  http://thewideawakening.com/3days   Email:  Info@thewideawakening.com Free Gift:  www.Agentsofawakening.com   Stalk me online!

The movie "Full of Grace" Commentary by David Hoffmeister - Weekly Online Movie Workshop "At one point, Jesus uses a metaphor in the Course, where he says, you have these fallen leaves from the trees landing on a stream, and the leaves float down along the river stream, and Jesus says; Come with me, sink beneath the leaves, sink down underneath the leaves with me into the Kingdom of Heaven. It's a beautiful metaphor for going into stillness, and that's really our purpose. We're going into a cloistered community, meaning we're going into a deep mystical experience together that some have called mysticism. We will still be broadcasting and sharing from this beautiful state of mind, but the actual state is beyond words. It's beyond describing, and mother Mary will actually explain this to Simon Peter in the movie tonight."Enjoy David's mystical mindset and commentary on the mystical movie Called "Full of Grace."You can watch the introduction to the movie on YouTube: https://youtu.be/LW37X-W60hwIf you want to know more about Living Miracle and David Hoffmeister and upcoming events, look here: https://circle.livingmiraclescenter.org/events.The movie workshop was recorded Saturday, October 9, 2021, in Chapala, Mexico.

And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that manmade gods are no gods at all. There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited, and the goddess herself, who is worshipped throughout the whole province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty."1.

It is important, therefore, for each generation to reflect afresh on Paul's theology."Ephesians 1:15-23 NIVFor this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God's people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.1.

https://astralcodexten.substack.com/p/highlights-from-the-comments-on-modern   Thanks to everyone who commented on Whither Tartaria (currently 1079 comments). Many of you really like modern architecture, and many others of you really hate it. I appreciate most of you being able to accept disagreement on that and move on to the bigger question of why there's so much more of it now. The most interesting thing I got from the comments was Chaostician linking to Wikipedia's page on the Great Male Renunciation - men's fashion changing from ornate colorful clothing to dark suits. Wikipedia seems pretty convinced that this was because of egalitarianism norms: The Great Male Renunciation is the historical phenomenon at the end of the 18th century in which Western men stopped using brilliant or refined forms in their dress, which were left to women's clothing. Coined by psychoanalyst John Flügel in 1930, it is considered a major turning point in the history of clothing in which the men relinquished their claim to adornment and beauty. The Great Renunciation encouraged the establishment of the suit's monopoly on male dress codes at the beginning of the 19th century. The Great Male Renunciation began in the mid-18th century, inspired by the ideals of the The Enlightenment; clothing that signaled aristocratic status fell out of style in favor of functional, utilitarian garments. The newfound practicality of men's clothing also coincided with the articulation of the idea that men were rational and that women were frivolous and emotional.

Always in the joy of what I'm being shown. Like our Tabula Rasa theme. Jesus told us in the course that, "You taught yourself this world and you taught yourself so thoroughly that you never paused for one moment to ask yourself, why?". Why am I teaching myself this world of separation. You never paused for a moment to look at the purpose, why am I doing this? That's why we have to unlearn the world. We've been at it for millenniums. Way beyond physical lifetimes. We are building something like a sandcastle that's not going to stand when the wave comes in. And when the wave does come in the ego screams. Now my sandcastle will be gone, like it was there in the first place. Don't regret letting go of what could never happen, that's not part of God's will. At some point, you have to get to that song from the movie Frozen. "Let it go, Let it go, Let it go.

He worked primarily in Antwerp, and he's credited with creating landscape painting as an independent subject. Joachim's scenes are imaginary. His world landscape offers a panoramic landscape with craggy rocks and boulders jutting out a cliff on one side and partially obscuring the view. Then he usually included small figures portraying religious events. His use of vibrant colors and little details set in the sweeping landscapes is mesmerizing.   October 5, 1850 Birth of William Hamilton Gibson, American illustrator, author, and naturalist. Born in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, William grew up with an immediate love of the natural world. When he was ten years old, his parents sent him to a boarding school called the Gunn school for advanced training. Frederick Gunn loved the natural world, and he incorporated the study of nature into the academic teachings of the school.  As a young teen, he wrote his mother, I have just found an Imperial moth worm on a maple tree. Will you please look on one of the small apple trees in the orchard near the place where the arbor used to be… there is a tree on which I put a Cecropia worm for myself…  I think a great deal of it, or I wouldn't write about it.  The boys are leaving from here very fast, and we all will leave in 13 days more.... P. S. That worm that I told you about on the apple tree, if very large, must be taken off and put into a box with fresh apple leaves every day; if small, do the same. In another note to his mother, he ended with this offer, In a garden up here, there is a kind of Columbine, very large, of two kinds, purple and white and very large. I am welcome to all the seed that I want. I don't know whether you want any or not, but nevertheless, I'll get you a lot. I remain Your aff. son Willie. At the Gunn school, William was able to study all aspects of the natural world - even botany  - and he benefited from being surrounded by the immersive nature of the school. He wrote, There is often an almost inexhaustible field for botanic investigation even on a single fallen tree. My scientific friend ...recently informed me... that he had spent two days most delightfully and profitably in the study of ...a single dead tree, and [was surprised to learn that] a hundred distinct species of plants congregated upon it. Plumy dicentra clustered along its length, graceful sprays of the frost-flower with its little spire of snow crystals rose up here and there, scarlet berries of the Indian turnip glowed among the leaves, and, with the ….lycopodiums and mosses, ...ferns and lichens, and [a] host of fungous growths, it [was] easy… to extend the list of species into the second hundred. It is something worth remembering the next time we go into the woods. As an adult, William lived in Brooklyn. He started out in a soul-crushing job selling insurance until the day he tried to sell insurance to a draftsman. He ended up spending the day watching him draw and immediately pivoted to pursue an art career. His first gig was drawing feathers for Harper Brothers magazine. His iconic peacock feather drawing sealed his fate as an illustrator. Once he began writing, he also became known as a nature writer. One of his favorite places to write was a wild corner of Prospect Park. There he enjoyed a rare oasis of flora and fauna unlike any other green space in the city. When the city sought to clean up the wild space by cutting trees and removing plants, William wrote articles for the newspaper and persuaded local leaders to see what the city stood to lose. After the city reversed course, William Hamilton Gibson became known as the man who saved Prospect Park.   October 5, 1873 Birth of Merritt Lyndon Fernald, American botanist. He wrote over 800 papers and coauthored Edible Wild Plants of Eastern North America (1919-1920) with Alfred Kinsey, the American scientist, and sexologist. On one of his herbarium sheets, he once wrote a quick poem about the Rhodora - the pink blooming azalea found in the Northeastern United States. The gay Rhodora long the margin stands, Forerunner of the summer's fairer Rose; Yet coming as she does to ope spring's lands, She brightens every mood wherein she blows.   Unearthed Words Our gardening forebears meant watermelon to be the juicy, barefoot taste of a hot summer's end, just as a pumpkin is the trademark fruit of late October. Most of us accept the latter and limit our jack-o'-lantern activities to the proper botanical season. Waiting for a watermelon is harder. It's tempting to reach for melons, red peppers, tomatoes, and other late-summer delights before the summer even arrives. But it's actually possible to wait, celebrating each season when it comes, not fretting about its being absent at all other times because something else good is at hand. ― Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life   Grow That Garden Library Dirr's Encyclopedia of Trees and Shrubs by Michael A. Dirr This book came out in 2011, and it is a hefty gem of a resource. This book has over 3500 photographs of over 3700 species and cultivars. Michael covers thousands of plants in this very detailed book, from flowering shrubs to weeping trees.

Denis was an ordinary man. He was not part of the aristocracy like his contemporary, Voltaire. After he started work on the first encyclopedia in France, he was imprisoned - punished for claiming that knowledge came from our senses and not from God. In this way and many others, Denis Diderot challenged the church, but he learned to be a little more discreet with his criticisms over time. Diderot's concept for his encyclopedia was to gather together the brightest minds of his time and create a series of books that shared standard academic fair like philosophy and literature and everyday jobs in the crafts and trades. This type of information had never been captured, and by including it in his encyclopedia, he elevated the people's work. Some of the work he wrote about was horticultural and floral. For Instance, he featured the work of artificial flower makers and market gardeners. Today, the illustrated pages of these jobs have become popular as pieces of art. Speaking of art, Diderot was a huge admirer of artisans and art. He was a tough critic. He once wrote, First of all, move me, surprise me, rend my heart; make me tremble, weep, shudder, outrage me! Delight my eyes, afterwards, if you can...  Whatever the art form, it is better to be extravagant than cold. Denis Diderot's 28-volume Encyclopédie (1751-1772) featured work from over 100 writers covering over 71,000 entries and 20 million words. Although it was banned by both King Louis XV of France and the Vatican, Diderot's Encyclopédie was a huge success and led Diderot to devise his famous saying that,  A book banned is a book read.  Today the Encyclopédie is considered one of the great works of the European Enlightenment.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener.

This episode focuses on Right Effort, one part of the Noble Eightfold Path. Buddha repeatedly taught the importance of effort, for realizing the rest of the eightfold spiritual path depends on effort. In this context effort means energy directed toward cultivating the mind. The path begins with an impure mind and a wish to change; the liberated mind is the culmination of the path.what comes between is unrelenting effort. Here we focus on the four powers of effort, which teaches us how to make positive change unstoppable.    Time and again the Buddha has stressed the need for effort, for diligence, exertion, and unflagging perseverance. The reason why effort is so crucial is that each person has to work out his or her own deliverance. The Buddha does what he can by point- ing out the path to liberation; the rest involves putting the path into practice, a task that demands energy. This energy is to be applied to the cultivation of the mind, which forms the focus of the entire path. The starting point is the defiled mind, afflicted and deluded; the goal is the liberated mind, purified and illumi- nated by wisdom. What comes in between is the unremitting effort to transform the defiled mind into the liberated mind. The work of self-cultivation is not easy — there is no one who can do it for us but ourselves — but it is not impossible.   Buddha himself and his accomplished disciples provide the liv- ing proof that the task is not beyond our reach. They assure us, too, that anyone who follows the path can accomplish the same goal. But what is needed is effort,   4 powers of effort  Aspiration. Dream. Wish. You have to develop a strong wish to accomplish an important goal or personal change. Visualize yourself having accomplished it. In your imagination, feel how wonderful it is. Imagine what your life is like having attained this goal/change. Steadfastness. Steadfastly put these planned steps into action. Accomplish your daily goals. Decide what has to be done to accomplish this goal--according to your capacity. Very clearly identify the first step (what you will do tomorrow.) Plan what the steps will be the following day toward realizing your goal. Create a step-by-step plan. Joy. Your plan to change must be a joyful one. We won't do what makes us suffer for very long! The path toward change will be challenging, but it cannot be very unpleasant. The Buddhist path should always be a joyful one if we are practicing correctly. Rest. Rest is a power of effort. Plan to take rest and have a break. Also, when we have an unexpected rest (when we diverge from our plan), don't feel that you have failed. Steadfastness means we are going in the trajectory of our dreams, not that we are perfect. Through the steadfast accomplishment of daily actions toward your goal or personal change, confidence will naturally arise. Eventually, you will be familiar with this new way of being.

Movie "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" Commentary by David Hoffmeister - Tabula Rasa Online Retreat Movie Workshop Linear time is a construct of the ego, and you may notice that most of your thoughts during the day relate to the past and the future. If you wonder why you're not happy all the time, it's just because you have thoughts of the past and future still hanging around in the unconscious mind that flitter and flutter up to the surface during the day. What am I going to have to eat for lunch? What will I have for dinner? Is it going to rain today? Is it going to be a sunny day? Will I be able to go out and take a walk? Listen, all these thoughts are of the past and future. These are not Ramana Maharshi's thoughts. These are not Jesus Christ's thoughts, and these are not Paramahansa Yogananda's thoughts. These are thoughts of the ego of linear time. And yet, we have to allow Jesus and the Holy Spirit to use the symbols of time to undo the belief in linear time. Jesus and the Holy Spirit don't try to hurl you into eternity. They don't hurl you screamingly into the light. They actually come and massage your mind with beautiful movies like today. This movie is a mind massage, no doubt.Enjoy David's humourous and deep commentary inspired by one of the strongest forgiveness movies ever made.You can see some of the introduction to the movie on YouTube: https://youtu.be/fBMQlmvAxWo.If you are interested to know more about David Hoffmeister and Living Miracles events, here is more information: https://circle.livingmiraclescenter.org/events.Recorded on October 2, 2021, in Chapala, Mexico.

In the first hour we'll connect with geopolitical analyst and editor of Land Destroyer, Brian Berletic, to discuss his recent work unravelling West's preparation for a war with China and how they will use the Uyghur issue as tool of destabilisation on China's western front. In the second hour, we'll connect with theorist and cognitive scientist, Dr Mark Changizi (FreeX/ Twitter/ YouTube), to discuss how the ‘global pandemic' has radically transformed society and civil norms in such a short space of time, and leaving large parts of the population psychologically damaged. Can modern civilisation withstand such an assault, not just on human rights, free speech and basic liberties, but on fundamental post-Enlightenment concepts like critical thinking, rationality, and scientific inquiry? We hope so, but the road ahead looks very bumpy indeed. All this and much more.

Are human beings born innocent or corrupt? Do we have the ability to a perfect world or is that sort of thing impossible? Those drawing on Enlightenment assumptions assert that man is born pure and that corruption comes through outside forces. In this view, utopia becomes achievable to the extent that we eliminate all the sources of corruption. But rather than ushering in heaven on earth, this outlook actually has a long track record of creating totalitarian dystopias. So, where is our culture headed at present, and which vision of man and society will ultimately prevail?

Opening Session of the Tabula Rasa Online Retreat with David Hoffmeister, Lisa Fair, and Frances Xu - October 1, 2021"A healed mind is relieved of the belief that it must plan," Jesus says in A Course in Miracles. Still, all of us have been raised with the notion that if you want to be a successful functioning human being, a successful functioning citizen, you have to plan for the future, and if you can get good at planning, you will be MORE successful.In a later part of the text, called Beyond Idols, there is a very famous section where Jesus asks, What is an idol? Do you think you know? And he goes on to say, "An idol is for more of something. It does not matter, more of what." So MORE is the concept, is the idol. So when you want more of anything, even an event or an experience or more of an object or more of an image, it doesn't really matter MORE of what, you are not in the moment. You are not in the contentment of the holy instant.Enjoy David, Frances, and Lisa's talk about Tabula Rasa, not planning and being in the Holy Instant.You can watch the first hour of the session on YouTube: https://youtu.be/i39JjXA9LQ0If you are interested to know more about David Hoffmeister and Living Miracles events, here is more information: https://circle.livingmiraclescenter.org/events.Recorded on October 1, 2021, at La Casa de Milagros, Chapala, Mexico.
